help me how to run the linux packet generator

goto google -> search for 'pktgen' -> click on the first link, you will get the setup information from linux foundation site..

i am new to the linux environment. so can anyone help me how to run the pktgen?

the first few lines in these documentation are as follows,
"Enable CONFIG_NET_PKTGEN to compile and build pktgen.o either in kernel
or as module"

can anyone say how to enable CONFIG_NET_PKTGEN ? and how to build pktgen.o ?

Install the kernel sources from your distribution repository, cd /usr/src/linux, and change the .config file accordingly. Then make modules_install.

These are kernel compilation options. I would check to see if your kernel has this module already compiled up first. Try:
cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`
find . -name "pktgen.*o" -print

If this finds the compiled module, then you have it already and can move onto the next step, ie installing the module into running memory and configuring and using it.
If it doesn't find this object file, then you will need to download your kernel sources (this is different on different distro's so if you can detail what distro you have, we can help you with this), and recompile the kernel with the necessary options...probably
best to read something like this to get you started.

I hope this helps...
